guess the dish!

I like to experiment in the kitchen and try out new recipes and I thought I'd share a picture of what I made for dinner last night and see if any of you could guess what it is!

Hint: it's ethnic. Ha, but anything other than hot dogs could be considered "ethnic" if you think about it. Oh, that's another hint, it's not a hot dog.

tater tot the toothless wonder: update

Tater Tot went under the knife on Tuesday. He was very scared to be away from home for that long, and it was really sad to be Tater Tot-less for a whole day and night. Sometimes I sit back and reflect on how important Tater is in my life and I have to remind myself that he is a dog, not a child. But...well, I still act like a doting mother. I called the vet at 5 p.m. because I hadn't heard from their office all day and I wanted to see how the pup was doing. He had just gotten out of surgery and was doing fine but was still asleep. The doctor called me back 30 minutes later and was so sweet and explained the procedure and everything she did.

I won't go into details because there's nothing worse than reading about some gross surgery and then scrolling down to find a cupcake recipe, but Tater had a total five teeth removed (the doctor saved them and gave them to me, EW!). He was pretty groggy when I picked him up yesterday but he's doing just fine. He has been quieter than usual because I think his mouth still hurts, but if you ask me that's a good thing. He's very happy that he gets to eat delicious wet dog food instead of the usual dry food because it's too hard for his sensitive mouth.

Most importantly, thank you all so much for your support!! I honestly didn't think anyone would donate, but my friend Bebe suggested it and I thought "Yeah! Why not?" and was pleasantly surprised by your donations! It means a lot to me to know that outside of my real-life friends and family, I have the support of my blog-life friends and family. When I started this blog way back in December I figured Twin would read it, and maybe a few high school friends. I had no idea that I would meet such amazing people all around the world just by writing a silly blog. Thank you all for reading!

if anyone orders merlot, i'm leaving

I went wine tasting last night. Well, more like wine chugging for me. Ha, I am the worst wine taster ever. The pourers kept trying to explain the wines to me and it was very clear I wasn't even trying to listen to what they had to say "Uh huh, cool, can I get some more of that white wine? Oh you're out of that? Then more of whatever, it doesn't matter. Thanks."

I rarely ever drink, but when I do my motto is always "go big or go home" which I always end up regretting the next day. I woke up this morning at 6 AM, still intoxicated and feeling worse and worse with every minute. FYI, there is nothing on TV at 6 AM. My choices included: a travel show on roller coasters, men's singles tennis at the Olympics, and a history channel show on the different land speed records in the United States...aka the worst things to watch when you're trying to make the room stop spinning.

Currently, I'm feeling incredibly hung over, I'm still wearing my make up from last night, and I'm all sorts of congested for some reason. In other words, I feel, look, and sound like shit. I'm a triple threat today.
